This should help the van "see pic below"Been following this thread over on the Sprinter forum. Never fails to amaze me how many "know it alls" try to sway folks because it's something they think and could not possibly know.
Again, it's that 3 pointed star being something special mentality showing. I try to share my knowledge and opinions of things I've actually had a hands on with and have experienced myself.
Now to get off my rant........
LOL! Now I will be excepted in the club, and I am going over thereUncubed, you just doubled the maintenance costs on that van.
If someone wanted extra rear-axle ground clearance for light off-roading, they could either adapt an independent rear suspension or they could section the frame rails for greater clearance. That would allow a straighter axle without as much drop. A custom vehicle fabricator could do it easily.There is about 8 inches of travel when completely bottomed out.
Flip the axle and there will be none 0 because of the low floor height.
Some people can not visualize mechanics
